Katherine Hood picked the perfect time to score her first collegiate goal.

With the Eastern Oregon University women’s soccer team locked in a scoreless tie with Oregon Tech Saturday, Hood came through with a goal in the 82nd minute, lifting the Mountaineers to a 1-0 Cascade Conference victory.

“Shelby (Tucker) crossed it and it missed everyone else, and I ran far post and scored it,” Hood said. “It felt really good. I haven’t scored a goal in six years.”

The victory improved the Mountaineers to 6-2-1 overall and 3-1 in the CCC. The Owls drop to 4-7-1 overall and 1-3 in the CCC.

“Definitely pleased with the effort,” EOU head coach Jennifer Simonetti said. “I think we were a little weak defensively. We gave up some really good opportunities that we lucked out not to get scored on. But we were strong offensively. We kept the ball, created some good opportunities, it just took us some time to finish.”

The game was evenly matched throughout, with the Owls limiting EOU’s scoring opportunities. OIT outshot EOU 6-4 in the first half.

“It was getting frustrating,” Hood said. “The second half was better in terms of consistency of the crosses. (We had) a more active midfield.”

EOU upped its intensity as the game wore on, with seven shots on goal in the second half. After Thursday’s loss to Southern Oregon, Simonetti wasn’t happy with her player’s effort, and Hood said the Mountaineers had to come out ready to play against OIT.

“We had a 30-minute training session (Friday),” Hood said. “Everyone went really hard and tried to get their intensity up.”

That intensity paid off when Hood finally came through with the clock ticking down.

“It was awesome,” Simonetti said of Hood’s goal. “She’s been a phenomenal 90-minute player for us all season. It was really nice to see her put some points on the board. She was in the right place at the right time. She deserved it.”

Simonetti said that the team meeting on Friday helped restore some team chemistry.

“We had a little girly pow wow, and I think (the players) really started to come together as a team again. That’s what we need to see the rest of the season.”

EOU returns to the field Thursday when it travels to Kirkland, Wash., for a CCC game against Northwest University.

NU is 6-5-1 overall this year and 2-0-1 in the CCC.
